WBD Survey 3

Half-term begins today; we resume term on Monday 28th February. Meanwhile, we'll continue to post the many book recommendations we're getting through our World Book Day survey, leading up the day itself on Thursday 3rd March. Here are four more:

Mags: A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson
It lets me know where I stand in the universe. I read it again every year once now, and feel better each time - even though I promptly forget most of the details. The scientific explanations are accessible and told with gentle irony. I love it.

Scotty : Kensuke's Kingdom, by Michael Morpurgo

This book was inspiring to read at a young age. It is a true story about a boy left in the wilderness. I recommend it to anyone, for this book looks at the lives that other people live and the huge differences to ours.

tse : Of Marriageable Age, by Scott Maas

There are 3 story lines in this that you can't quite connect until 3/4 of the way through.
When one character finally catches a glimpse of one of the other characters you know and love, it's just pure magic!

@fellfromatree: No Time For Goodbyes by Linwood Barclay

The book has a very intricate plot line, and so many twists and turns that I couldn't bring myself to put it down...I just HAD to know what was coming next!
